Psalm 147:5 Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.
In the movie, Magnum Force, the Clint Eastwood character famously intones this one Biblical truth; “A man’s got to know his limitations.” How true this is when it comes to matters of human wisdom versus Godly wisdom. We cannot see the ends which God has planned. And make no mistake, God has planned the outcome of all life on earth. All life, but, what we call life, God sees only as an interlude in the great span of his eternity.
Now many will scoff and say words to the effect that, “I just can’t get my head around that”. You know what? That’s not God’s problem. We cannot stretch our little pea brains anywhere near enough to comprehend the attributes and plans of God. Jesus’ life was a glimpse into the great purposes of God and how did we respond to that? How are we yet responding today?
Here, is the basis for this continuing blog: All along the way God has made promises. To date almost all of those promises have been fulfilled, especially his promises of a deliverer, Jesus of Nazareth, who, by virtue of his purity, crucifixion and resurrection has been proclaimed “king of kings and Lord of lords”. There are promises yet to come and we need to begin to prepare ourselves for their fulfillment, as the time approaches. As Malachi the prophet wrote, “…the great and terrible day of the lord.” (Malachi 4:5) is coming perhaps sooner than we may realize.
